Therapy for Anxiety
“Our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future, but from wanting to control it.”
~ Kahlil Gibran
Helping adults and adolescents discover ways to manage whatever life throws at them.
Sometimes life sucks and it feels like things are never going to get better. Perhaps right now is one of those times.
Most people who start Therapy for Anxiety feel lost in life on some level, unsure of how to find their way through the panic and hamster wheel of thoughts. Perhaps you can relate. Maybe you check things off of your to-do list but you don’t feel like you’re ever truly getting anything or enough done, or you know you’d be happier if things changed, but it feels safer and more comfortable to stay the same.
Feeling stuck in a negative loop and feeling worried all the time is exhausting and you want a chance to be present and more content in the life you are living now.
“Do You Feel Stressed, Worried, Panicky? Do you feel like a top spinning out of control?”
It’s not selfish to prioritize caring for yourself. You don’t have to always put work or your family’s needs over your own. In fact, you can be a better you for others if you take care of yourself first.
Do any of the following resonate with you?
- You are in a constant state of panic and never feel settled
- You have an insane schedule that doesn’t let you rest, but you also don’t know what to do with time off.
- You feel dread, fear, have strange thoughts, and your heart feels like it’s jumping out of your chest
- Your family and friend often tell you to “chill out” or “stop worrying so much”
- You feel like things have to be perfect all the time in order to do them
- You struggle with workaholism, overachieving, and never feeling good enough
- You struggle with stomach issues, neck and head pain, or feeling tension in your body
- You have experienced panic attacks where it feels like you are actually having a heart attack
- You try to control your surroundings but its leads to frustration, anger, or overwhelm
- You find yourself overanalyzing and overthinking everything you do
- You can’t fall asleep at night because your mind is racing with everything and anything “What should I make for dinner” “Do bumblebees have wings?” “Did I write that appointment down?”
If these sound true for you, we are here to tell you that you are not alone. We often hear clients say they do not have the time to make for themselves, or they feel like a failure for asking for help. But getting the help you need is a sign of strength and will help you manage all the anxiousness that comes up in your life.
